The Phosgene Panel of the American Chemistry Council was established in 1972 to support the phosgene industry and to serve the public through the continuous evaluation of and improvements to the production, distribution and use of phosgene. The Panel is composed of companies that manufacture, use or distribute phosgene. Phosgene Panel members account for more than 95 percent of U.S. production of phosgene, which is several million tons of material. The Panel is guided by the principles of Responsible Care®.

Panel Objectives and Activities:
